Scrappy Moms Stamps - January Release Day!

Welcome to the Scrappy Moms Stamps January Release Day!  We have 2 new stamp sets to share with you today: Out of this World and Truly, Madly, Deeply!  For my project I created a sweet card using the Love Bugs cutting file from KaDoodle Bug Designs.  Their adorable faces were stamped with the Peachy Keen Black Eyed Peaches Face Assortment stamp set.
A bit of Stickles were added to the bees for some sparkle and shine.  I stamped the sentiment from the newly released Truly, Madly, Deeply stamp set and fussy cut it so it would appear as if the bees were holding it.
Here's a closer look at the 2 new stamp sets, available here:

Trendy Twine Design Day

Hello everyone!  I'm over on the Trendy Twine blog today with a card to share featuring Raspberry Cupcake twine and the Raspberry Cupcake sequins.  I created a shaker style card using a Polaroid frame cut from the When I was a Kid cartridge.  The shaker was created with the We R Memory Keepers Photo Sleep Fuse Tool.  I just got my new tool for Christmas and already love it.   The adorable little girl was cut from the KaDoodle Bug Designs Sweet Love cutting file.  I stamped her face with the Peachy Keen In the Garden Assortment stamp set.
The sentiment is from the Scrappy Moms With All My Heart stamp set.  I used a bit of the Raspberry Cupcake twine to accent my card as the finishing touch.
Head on over to Annie's Paper Boutique to check out all of the gorgeous twine colors and to purchase these Raspberry Cupcake sequins.  Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fabulous day!

Happy Birthday Layout

Today I am sharing a simple layout page I created.  I had this gorgeous cupcake paper in my stash and came across it while looking for something else.  Since it was already embellished with the cupcake border and flowers, I simply added the Cutie KaToodles - Cupake Bear from KaDoodle Bug Designs.
I tucked in a tag from my stash behind the photo mat.  It was a fairly large tag so I was able to stamp a sentiment from the Scrappy Moms Birthday Hugs stamp set and still have enough room on the bottom for journaling.   The tag was accented with a Chevron Trendy Page Dot and some Pinkberry Sorbet Trendy Twine.  A small punched cupcake was added to the tag and to the flag in the corner of the page.
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a great day!

You & Me Layout

Today I have a sweet layout to share which I created for some pictures of my husband and I on a getaway we went on last year.  I used the Valentine Transportation cutting file from KaDoodle Bug Designs for the bike and heart balloons.  I tied the balloons to the bike with some Posy Trendy Twine. The balloons and bike were popped up on foam dots for added dimension.
The you & me title was cut from the Cheerful Seasons cartridge.   I tucked in a journaling tag and used some enamel dots as an accent on my layout.  The sentiment is from the Scrappy Moms Whimsical Words stamp set.  I added a few metal brads to the bike as a finishing touch.
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have an awesome day!

Terrific Tuesday Challenge - Sparkle and Shine

Today I have a project to share for the Terrific Tuesday Challenge over at Scrappy Moms Stamps which I am also sharing over at KaDoodle Bug Designs Blog.  I had a conflict with my posts for 2 of my design teams so I combined my project.  The theme for the Terrific Tuesday Challenge is Sparkle and Shine.  This was a super easy challenge for me since I love all things sparkly and shiny. For my project I created a single page 12x12 layout using the Valentina cutting file from KaDoodle Bug Designs.  Her face was stamped with Peachy Keen Rosie's Favorites Assortment stamp set.
I added touches of sparkle throughout my page using some embellishments from my stash.  I also added some Stickles to Valentina's jacket.  A few sparkly gems near the title of my page were added as an accent.  The "fun" sentiment is from the Scrappy Moms Ticket to Adventure stamp set.

XOXO Card

Today I am sharing a collage style card which is very pink, pretty in pink for me since it is one of my favorite colors.  I cut the base of my card from the Bridal Shower cartridge initially thinking I would make a shaker card only to change my mind.  All of the embellishments for my card came from my stash.  I especially love the mason jar sticker which I embellished with some Raspberry Cupcake Trendy Twine.
I used an envelope die for the mini envelopes.  The sentiment is from the Scrappy Moms Love Notes stamp set, of course I had to used some pink ink for it too.  Some punched flowers and scattered Raspberry Cupcake Sequins were the finishing touch on my card.
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a wonderful day!

Feel Better

Unfortunately it's that time of the year when germs are circulating everywhere.  I thought I would create a fun little care package to cheer up a friend.  I added some cough drops to a candy chute from Annie's Paper Boutique.   I cut an oversized tag from the Imagine More cartridge using my Cricut Explore to attach to the candy chute.  The medicine bottle was cut from the KaDoodle Bug Designs Check Up Kids cutting file.
I modified the center of the medicine bottle a bit to accommodate the face stamp which is from the Peachy Keen Get Well Soon Face Assortment stamp set.  I included a sentiment from the Scrappy Moms More Mini Messages stamp set.  My tag was finished off with a bit of sheer ribbon and some Chocolate Truffle Trendy Twine.

Trendy Twine Design Day

Hello everyone!  I'm over on the Trendy Twine blog today with a single page layout to share featuring Raspberry Cupcake twine.  The gorgeous papers are from my new Pink Paislee Pen Pals paper pad.  I created this layout using some basic shapes and some cuts from Design Space for my Cricut Explore. The little snowman's face was stamped with the Peachy Keen Frosty Friends Face Assortment Stamps.
The twine was used to outline a few of the die cuts, embellish the sentiment tag and also looped on the page.  I love the texture the twine adds.  I also added some doodling to some of the die cuts with my white gel pen. The sentiment is from the Scrappy Moms Love Notes stamp set.

Be Happy Today!

Today I have a CAS card to share which is a bit different for me since I love to embellish everything in sight.  I created my card base with some foil papers from the DCWV - DIY Project Stack Envelopes.  I just love the white paper with the gold hearts and the black paper with the gold polka dots.  The only other color missing was some pink so I used the Happy Valentine's Day Printable from Annie's Paper Boutique and added it to the center of my card.
I accented my printable with some Black Licorice Trendy Twine.  A few scattered enamel dots were added as embellishments.  I had to add some type of embellishments so I opted for twine and enamel dots.
Thank so much for stopping by!  Have a wonderful day!

Terrific Tuesday Challenge

Welcome to another Terrific Tuesday Challenge over at Scrappy Moms Stamps.  The theme for this challenge is New Year - New You!  This challenge can incorporate those New Year's resolutions too! For my project I created a fun card using the Fitness Bear from KaDoodle Bug Designs.  The bear's face was stamped with the Peachy Keen Teddy Bear Face Assortment Stamps.
Isn't she the cutest fitness bear?  You might as well look cute while you work out right?  The adorable sentiment is from the Scrappy Moms The Charmed Life stamp set.  I thought the sentiment was so perfect for this challenge.

Trendy Twine Design Day

Hello everyone!  I'm over on the Trendy Twine blog today with a card to share featuring Raspberry Cupcake twine and some pretty Raspberry Cupcake sequins.  The sequins will be available in the store next week.  The tag for my card was cut from the Doodlecharms cartridge.  I stamped the inside of the tag with the Peachy Keen Frosty Friends Face Assortment Stamps and created a shaker out of it.  I added enough sequins to cover the bottom half of the snowman.  The sequins were also added to the sentiment flag and to the center of the flower.
The twine was used to accent my tag.  I also tied a bow with it and adhered it to the clear acetate to break up the top and bottom of the sweet snowman.  The sentiment is from the Scrappy Moms Happily Ever After stamp set.
Head on over to Annie's Paper Boutique to check out all of the gorgeous twine colors and to purchase these sequins, available next week.  Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fabulous day!
